Really?? So nfl.com thinks the Skins, Bears, 9ers, Colts & Broncos have better receiving corps than our Lions?

Maybe I'm being bias, that is a possibility or maybe I'm adding in receiving threats they didn't factor in for the other teams. I was ok with us not being listed at number 1 even 2 and 3 didn't really phase me, but not even TOP 5!! come on Bucky Brooks(here it is ) realistically we all know Megatron compensates for all the teams top 2 receivers except the Bears (Alshon and Marshall) are some beast, but being he listed rosters current I will factor in Golden Tate who isn't a slouch in his own right to compliment Mr. Johnson. The Lions also drafted Eric Ebron whom I wasn't happy with the pick initially (not because of the pick i was still shocked buffalo was the team that took the Watkins possibility off the table for us after being teased by all those instagram photos in Lions unis) who is a highly rated athlete especially at his position according to this sports science clip.

That's just the beginning of the teams listedthese are the players that had more than 250 yards receiving there were only 6 and out of those only 4 broke 500 yards receiving which the Lions field two of those names

Matt Forte 74 catches for 594 yards -Bears

Knowshon Moreno 60 catches for 548 yards - Broncos

Joique Bell 53 catches for 547 yards - Lions

Reggie Bush 54 catches for 506 yards - Lions

Trent Richardson 28 catches for 265 yards - Colts

Roy Helu 31 catches for 251 yards - Redskins

We do have some other pieces I could name but that would be stretching such as Pettigrew (dropzilla), Fauria (redzone terror), Broyles(if healthy) but I will list their same list plus the teams running backs and see where you guys vote we should be place, oh yeah i forgot to mention that only 2 of those quarterbacks have the capability or offensive structure to throw for over 4'500 yards except Colts and Broncos as a side note.

Redskins: DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Andre Roberts, Roy Helu and Jordan Reed

Bears: Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett, Matt Forte and Marquess Wilson

Broncos: Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, Wes Welker, Emmanuel Sanders, Montee Ball and Cody Latimer (knowshon is in miami now)

49ers: Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree, Steve Johnson, Vernon Davis, Frank Gore and Brandon Lloyd

Colts:Trent Richardson, Reggie Wayne, Hakeem Nicks, T.Y. Hilton, Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen

Lions:Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Eric Ebron
